Bulk is starting pretty well 🙄 Am in that nice phase where calories have increased but the body fat hasn't started piling on yet 😅
Bulking can be a tough mental process for a lot of people, especially if you're used to being lean. You just feel bloated all the time and even though you may look perfect in the mirror, your head plays mind games with you making feel fatter than you look. It's why it's a good reason to slowly up calories and keep in a smaller calorie surplus. I usually only increase 100kcal from my maintenance during a bulk (from carbs cause yeah buddy carbs are bae). Another reason is if you're used to being very lean and constantly compare your current physique to yourself at your leanest. Usually being very lean isn't the healthiest place to sustain yourself in for a long period of time. Training can suffer, you may be deficient in nutrients, mentally you can be a bit sad and tired a lot and energy levels just suck. Not too mention the havoc it plays on your hormones depending how lean you are. So stop comparing yourself now to yourself 'at your peak'. Remind yourself it was a temporary phase and doesn't mean you're not in good shape now.
After a few years training you need a calorie surplus to gain muscle mass. So focus on the big picture and forget the desire to be lean all the time or you'll never properly progress your physique or your performance.
It really doesn't help that the leaner you are the more praise you seem to get from other people. Twice I've lost weight rapidly due to life stresses and I've never been more highly complimented then I was then. I was medically underweight, weak as hell, miserable and I've never gotten so many compliments. Kinda shit that the leaner you are the 'better' you are on social media. It's not always healthy and messes with our minds on what we should aim to look like.
There's a healthy middle between lean and healthy. It's okay to gain some weight sometimes and not have 6 pack abs all year round. It's not the norm even though it seems to have become it. And social media is skewing our expectations. Be Healthy, be happy, and don't let 2kg extra on the scales affect your self worth.
Just a reminder our fitness challenge will be taking place tomorrow from 8.30am to 10.30am and 12pm to 5pm with great prizes of 12, 6 and 3 months memberships to our gym to be won!!! -
There will be three different categories:
1: Beginner -
2: Intermediate -
3: Advanced -
So please do not let your fear of the gym or thinking it's pointless because people are fitter than you, stop you from a great chance of winning these great prizes. Everyone goes into there own category from the three above and nobody will be competing against eachother. You come out and post your time with our personal trainer Andrew and at the end of the day the fastest time in each category wins. -
This challenge should not take the average person more than 5 minutes!!
5 minutes and you could be in with a great chance to win membership to the gym 😊💪🏋️🔥 The beginner workout will be made up to ensure anybody can do it so don't be afraid of failing or not being able to do it 😊. Feel free to call out between 8:30 am and 10am and 12pm to 5pm.
All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you Tmrw 😊

Do we really need to hit rock bottom?
While listening the stories of many entrepreneurs and motivational speakers a pattern emerged.
The majority of them have dramatically hit rock bottom at least once in their life.
Why is that?
And how deep must be this hole before hit rock bottom?
Do we really need this to make a deep change in our lives?
I don't agree with that.
Why can't we change our lives now while the conditions of our existence are not that critical?
It would be much easier, wouldn't be?
In my life I had hit rock bottom here and there but personally I didn't need to pass through some very dramatic state of mind to rise back up on my feet like a phoenix.
For me hitting rock bottom means having too many annoying things on daily basis, things that frustrate me, things that make me feel uncomfortable.
At this stage then I know that I have to take action immediately otherwise things can blow up out of of proportion.
If you start to fix this small things there is no need to wait and hit rock bottom hard.
Just to give you a quick example, you have been eating badly recently so don't wait until you feel ashamed to look at yourself in the mirror after a shower.
Put your runners and go for it.
To conclude, I can suggest to don't wait until things become really bad but try to take action as soon as possible.
I know sometime is not easy but as long you acknowledge a situation that you don't like then MOVE.
Adding protein powder to oats a mixing them with water is a very simple way of increasing your protein intake at breakfast.
It is no different that using skim milk expect you get more protein and less carbs from the powder and water Vs the milk.
Plus if you get a decent flavour the added tatse may stop you using sweeteners which reduces the calorie intake.

Great graphic from @jorntrommelen on doing full range of motion squats creating greater muscle growth despite less weight being used than partial squats. Sorry bodybuilding bros, your half squats ain’t cutting it.
